You can use the following code:

StatusBar sBar = new StatusBar();

And based on your frame/panel, and the direction you would want to place your status bar (I guess SOUTH), you can use,

this.add(sBar, BorderLayout.SOUTH);

hope this helps..

You can simply use a JLabel for your status bar. Set the frame's layout to BorderLayout, and add the JLabel to the south of the frame.

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:
SPLIT points between mehtas and vermul

Please leave any comments here within the next seven days.

mehtas suggested using StatusBar class. Is there such a class?

vemul suggested using showStatus method. Only Applet has this method, but the questioner seems to be referring to stand-alone applications. Is there such a method in Frame, JFrame, Dialog or JDialog?

If the answers to the above two questions are no, then why accept their answers?
